First day of the @IARC2016 #aphasia conference

What a day! One keynote speaker, eight platform talks, five lightning talks and twenty two poster presentations.  I am inspired by the ambition level of the presenter projects, and the dedication of the researchers. 

Two very brief thoughts: 

1) Research about tele-rehabilitation (using e.g. Adobe Connect or Skype) is obviuosly trending. Keep your eyes open for interesting results coming up from all around the globe (not least Australia and Norway)! 

2) There is no consensus about how the issue of identity should be addressed. Some argue that the goal is to maintain the pre-stroke identity, while others argue that the key to success is to embrace the new post-stroke identity (including aphasia).
